11 Months and Christmas

A couple days shy of his 11 month birthday.  can't believe how he has grown!
-he pulls himself up on EVERYTHING even my leg!
-He calls me mama and rusty dada
-still takes his bottle but knows how to drink from a straw
-still crawls super goofy but also on his hands and knees for a couple seconds
-walks around furniture
-is done wearing his helmet! :)
-loves to wrestle his dad on the ground (seriously it is a sight to see)
-laughing much harder these days
-puts his gaurd up for when we are "Gonna Get you!"
-loves playing with toys!!
-still takes two naps around 10am and 2pm
-still has his binki for sleeping but nothing else (hopefully to be done with that soon! ;))

Wish I knew how to rotate this.  So here is a story for you....Karter woke us up at 3 am and we brought him to our bed being exhausted and hoping he would fall back to sleep oh no...he had enough energy to bounce around and crawl all over us.   It was like he knew it was Christmas morning! :)  We liked to say Kaden woke him up for all the excitement!

We always hang a stocking for Karter's Brother Kaden

He was so excited about his stocking stuffers!

Still doesn't know how to open a gift by himself but we helped a little :)  Grandma spoiled him!

This picture CRACKS me up like what mom I am playing with Dad! leave us alone.

We went to visit my Great Grandma Williams and was able to take this nice picture with her.  She was soooo excited to see her Great Great Grandson Karter! She kept calling him Kaden.

Speaking of Kaden My siblings and parents and our family went to visit our little man Kaden.  We all stood around and pondered.  I told Rusty after we left how I really felt loved that we were all able to gather and include Kaden in our thoughts on Christmas and that my siblings, parents, husband and son were all there with us! 

Karter was asleep in the car so we left him in there to sleep.

A couple days after Christmas we went to the snow and Karter had a BLAST.  He even went tubing with his dad! :)

Our family picture in the snow....don't look too close...i didn't shower or do my hair! :)

His outfit kept him warm and kept me laughing! SO CUTE

We hope you enjoyed your Christmas as much as we did!! :)

Merry Christmas!

I thought his expression when I sat him on Santa's lap was hillarious.  He looked up at him like who the heck are you?  LOL!  No screaming?! maybe next year?

Merry Christmas everyone!

Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!!! whoa

Our family on Halloween...our little Mickey Mouse was a hit!

He LOVES his big boy baths and is loving to splash his mom!

Playing with his toys is what he does best but he always comes looking for me after about 20-30 min sometimes less.

Mom is loving that I can feed myself some food.  At first my pincer grasp was not good at all so I would just shovel food in with my whole fist like this in the picture. It makes a HUGE mess

I officially pull myself up onto everything by myself now

and I get excited about it EVERY SINGLE TIME! :)

Visiting my Big brothers grave.  It was the 2 Year anniversary on November 30th and my mom decorated the house for Christmas with Grandma Addington and then me and my mom and dad went to zoo lights in honor of Kaden because He would have LOVED that! :)

Some of my Christmas Pictures....aren't I cute!?

My Big Brother and I

Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year
From Heaven and Earth

Love the Fife Family
Rusty, Jacquie, Kaden and Karter (11 months)

Karter's 8 month birthday! We stopped to visit Grandpa at work!

It was actually COLD outside this the weather right now you wouldn't believe it!

Getting fit for his can see clearly from this picture why he needs one!

Looked so cute!

Karter and Austin (Kaden's NICU buddy!)

LOVES how he takes big boy baths now!

lip seems to be healing better and better all the time.

lady's man ready for church!

how could you resist him!?

happy boy with his momma....we went to the Observation Deck of the Gilbert Temple (if you haven't been GO!) for FHE

Serious Karter

Of course now it's daddy's turn and he would NOT look at the camera. Obviously it must be the person behind the camera.

One day shy of 9 months.  Can't hardly believe that.  I didn't take comparison photos for 8 months woops!

LOVE his big blue eyes! :)

Karter-oh how time flies....

Is it really September?
Is my baby really this close to be 1 year old??
How did time go so quickly?
I am just loving being a mom to my little man Karter.
He officially sits well on his own, has two teeth (that we know of), and scoots pretty well! :)
Here are some pictures of what we have been up to lately.

My dad had a trip in Nevada and my mom and I decided to tag along....this is me in my carseat looking cuter than ever! I was so good for my mommy and daddy in the car ride there.

We didn't plan to give the same look.  I look like my daddy sometimes but I look alot like my mommy too....what do you think?

My mom LOVES when I snuggle her.  She is so comfy.

My grandpa loves to watch sports so sometimes I get to chill in his bed with him! :)

This is one of my FAVORITE toys to play with.  I always smile when it makes noise

When I whine for attention this is the face I make.  Isn't it cute!?

Me and my big brother's NICU buddy Austin.  He is one day younger than Kaden.  We are so happy to have the Biship family still in our lives! :)

Me learning to drink from a sippy cup....water is kind of boring but when I am really thirsty I will drink it!

My seven month comparison shots with Kaden's Giraffe. (a lil late)  I am getting so big!
